OMG, I finally got to Rite Aid and I got what I could find and went up to the register. I gave all my coupons and +Ups and the cashier stops b/c he says he has a strange message on his register and he calls the manager.
Well, my favorite manager comes up and looks at the message and asks me “How much in +Ups were you expecting?” I say $23 in +Ups.
She then says “lets go over to the other register” where she proceeds to give me a Gift Cards for $23 and says “gift cards are better than +Ups.
I ask “what happened?” She says that the registers are no longer giving people +Ups.
I ran home and check the Blogosphere and the problem is that Rite Aid rolled out the Load2Card nationwide TODAY and in some stores, the registers are automatically loading your +Up Rewards onto your Wellness Card!
You will need to opt-out of this feature and I Heart Rite Aid explains very well how to do this. You will need to print out the instructions and give it to the cashier, if you run into this problem. I went to two stores and it was the second store in which I had the problem.
There is definitely drama brewing at Rite Aid and we are going to be in for a bumpy ride!
